Moderator: Dr. Linda Rae Murray, Health & Medicine Board Member and Former President of the American Public Health Association

COVID-19 continues to shape our lives, economies, and societies. Better planning and responses to the pandemic would have saved lives throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. What went wrong with global collaboration and partnership? What went well? What improvements can we make to better address COVID-19 and to prepare for future public health crises?

Join Health & Medicine Policy Research Group for a three-part series of forums focused on uncovering insights from the pandemic response, looking at global, national, and local levels. The forums will also look at how we can apply lessons from the pandemic to radically rethink and reshape the future of public health.

The first forum in this three-part series will focus on the international perspective and will feature Dr. Matthew Kavanagh from the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University Law. His presentation will be followed by a conversation with Dr. Linda Rae Murray regarding COVID-19 response and better planning for the future, with time for questions from the audience.

We invite all individuals who are interested in exploring this topic to attend, including those working in public health, healthcare, government, social service, and advocacy. Forum speakers will share key observations, lessons, and advice on the topic, as well as discuss the future of collaboration and partnership across the globe for pandemic and other emergency preparedness and response.

This event is sponsored by BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois
